galaxys5It seems like only a matter of time until Samsung will start dishing out various Galaxy S5 subspecies, but their exact number, names and hardware specifications are still anybody’s guess. A Galaxy S5 mini candidate codenamed SM-G870 popped up online a few weeks ago, then we saw an SM-G800 that we assumed was the S5 Neo, and earlier this week, a near certain GS5 zoom got benchmarked.

But what about the SM-G750? The model number was spotted in a User Agent Profile string on Samsung’s own mobile website, so it’s as legit as they come, yet its identity is a genuine riddle.

It’s no doubt somehow tied with the standard Galaxy S5, aka SM-G900, but could it be a variant we haven’t heard of before? Or is it the Galaxy S5 Neo, in which case the SM-G800 is something else?

Well, based on the features revealed by the UA Prof, it’s probably a stripped down model of sorts, dubbed Neo or Lite. The display, whose size is unknown, appears to sport a run-of-the-mill 1,280 x 720 pixels resolution, while under the hood you can find a quad-core 2.3 GHz processor, likely part of Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 family.

The on-board Android 4.3 Jelly Bean sure sounds weird for a phone poised to see daylight in Q2 or Q3 2014, however an upgrade to 4.4 KitKat ahead of the actual release is surely not out of the question. Headed to AT&T, the Galaxy S5 Neo (or whatever) had better cost significantly less than the regular S5. Otherwise, Sammy’s looking at a Note 3 Neo-like flop.
